Balfron720 Mini-Festival

This October 2023 sees the 720th Anniversary of Balfron’s first documented appearance on a Charter of Inchaffray Abbey, Perthshire. To mark this milestone, the Heritage Group have planned a series of events – not quite on the scale of Balfron700 – to involve the schools and community in this momentous occasion.

On the morning of Friday 6th, Dawn will be working with the pupils of Balfron Primary on a variety of medieval activities.

For further information, please feel free to e-mail us or search Balfron720 on Facebook.
